Cato Launches Libertarianism.org


The Cato Institute has unveiled a new website, Libertarianism, which will, in editor Aaron Ross Powell’s words, “facilitate[] deep and fruitful discussion of these ideas [of liberty]. And . . . introduce[] visitors to the value of the presumption of liberty.”

The site will feature classic and new articles and video lectures, never shown before, of such libertarian stalwarts as F. A. Hayek, Murray Rothbard, Milton Friedman, and Joan Kennedy Taylor. Libertarian philosopher and intellectual historian George H. Smith will contribute a weekly essay. His first is titled “Religious Toleration versus Religious Freedom.”

The site also has a blog.
